High End Beauty on a Budget – TJ Maxx Haul

High end beauty on a budget haul. Makeup swatches and first looks of high end beauty products I purchased at TJ Maxx.

A little while back I started a “high end beauty on a budget series.” I recently checked out my local TJ Maxx and was amazed by all the discounted HIGH END beauty products! Some of my favorite high end beauty brands, such as Anastasia Beverly Hills & Smashbox can be found at TJ Maxx! I was in awe. Not mention the prices are a STEAL! So today I figured I would do a little haul of some of the high end beauty products I picked up. Hope you enjoy (: & check out your local TJ Maxx to see what you can find!

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Subculture Eyeshadow Palette $29.99

High end beauty on a budget, TJ MAXX haul. Subculture palette.

I was pretty shocked when I saw this hidden gem in the aisles of TJ Maxx. I am so obsessed with ABH eyeshadow palettes! I have all except for the subculture palette… UNTIL NOW! I was really impressed by the shades. They are so stunning! However, I do find them to be a bit chalky compared to the newer palettes, but I guess that is expected.

As you can see, the matte shades are a little chalky and not as pigmented as I would of hoped, BUT I do really enjoy the glitter shades. I think they are perfect to add a little glisten to the center lid.

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Matte Lipsticks $7.99 each

High End Beauty on a Budget - Tj Maxx makeup haul - Anastasia Beverly Hills matte lipsticks and swatches.

I was so excited to find these high end beauties on a budget! I find it pretty difficult to find a good matte lipstick that I enjoy. I really like the formula of these lippies! Not to mention these shades are PERFECT for fall!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks $7.99 each

If you have been following me for a while then you know how much I LOVE ABH liquid lipsticks. Their pigmentation is incredible and they are pretty long lasting on the lips. Liquid lipsticks can be tricky and sticky, but I swear by these lippies!

Smashbox Liquid Pigment – Bad Apple $7.99

I am so obsessed with this high end beauty on a budget find! The Smashbox liquid pigment in the shade Bad Apple is the PERFECT red. These lippies don’t lie… Smashbox liquid pigments are POWERFULLY pigmented. Just look at this swatch…

BECCA Liquid Crystal Lip Topper $7.99

I have yet to try out any of Becca’s beauty products. The reason being is that I usually can never afford them! BUT, thanks to TJ Maxx I found so many awesome Becca products for CHEAP! The first product I purchased was this gorgeous crystal lip topper. You can put this over any lipstick to add a beautiful shimmer!

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured Creme – Prosecco Pop $12.99

I have been dying to try out a skin perfector by Becca. When I spotted this Prosecco Pop hidden gem I nearly melted. Mind you, it feels so luxurious!!! It adds the perfect amount of glow to the skin (it is creamy, not really a powdery feel) This swatch doesn’t do it justice.

SORRY – you can barely see it, but I promise it’s gorgeous in person.

BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation $12.99

I have been wanting to try out a new foundation for a while now. I really want to keep my summertime glow throughout the fall season, figured this luminous foundation would be perfect for achieving that look! I will update you on how I feel about it overall after I try it out some more!

Kat Von D Lock-It color correcting eyeshadow primer $2.99

I have always been a huge fan of Kat Von D so I figured why not purchase her eyeshadow primer! It was only $2.99 and I really needed a new eyeshadow primer! Shall see how it works (:

bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara $5.99

High end beauty on a budget, TJ Maxx haul

The reviews for this mascara were great so I definitely wanted to give it a try myself! I actually used this the other day and overall I was pleased. I love how it lengthens my lashes without creating that “spidery” look. I am a huge fan of bareMinerals so I am glad I was able to find this beauty on a budget steal!

That completes my haul!! Can’t believe how many goodies I found! If you haven’t already..GO NOW to your local TJ Maxx and check out all the beauty on a budget products.

Have you tried any of these out before? What do you think?
